I had a great time at Mars Hill Bluegrass Week last week. Had great students, heard great music, played some great guitars, got to hang out and jam with Roland White. The week was almost perfect for me. Back home now and back to my usual boring routine life.

It has been my experience of playing several of the newer chinese made guitars that either a Silver Creek D size or a Blue Ridge D-size would make a good dependable beginner flatpicking guitar. It would aslo depend on your budget as too which one you should buy, a mahogany or rosewood model. Blue Ridge makes a BR-160A which features an Adirondack top that sounds great and will cost around $750 to… Continue
